Ms. Radhika Doraiswamy,Secretary,Department of Posts,Dak Bhavan,New Delhi - 110001.
Sub : Productivity Linked Bonus (PLB) to Postal Employees for the year 2009-2010.
As you are aware the Pooja Festival (Dussehra) is celebrated all over India in the month of October. Every year Bonus for Central Govt. Employees is declared by the Govt. well before the commencement of Pooja Festival.
I request you to take necessary action to ensure grant of PLB to Postal Employees also before the Pooja Festival. The following issues which are agitating the minds of the Postal Employees may be considered favourably while declaring the Bonus for the year 2009-2010.
(a) The undeclared cap of 60 days imposed by the nodal ministry may be got removed and eligible Bonus granted.
(b) The enhanced monthly salary ceiling of Rs.3,500/- may be made applicable to Gramin Dak Sevaks also. In this regard the judicial pronouncements of various CATs may be referred.
(c) Casual Labourers and GDS may be granted Bonus as per the amended statutory Bonus Act.
A line in reply from your end will be highly appreciated.
